I was updating my paper display guide on a sheet of dot grid Fabriano paper when I decided to add some tangles. I chose the dot grid because the lines are easy that way with no need for a straight edge. Then I realized the dots were subtle enough that I could choose to ignore them just like portions of a string.
|Before color. Tangles are Skwim, Flux and Tipple.|
|With colored pencils|
|After laminating I wrote with an alcohol marker (or you could use dry erase markers).|
|And in use on my paper stand.|
After all the time taken in drawing and coloring, I decided to laminate it so I could write with any alcohol based marker. That way if I change things up later I can simply wipe it away with rubbing alcohol and not harm the artwork. In fact, I've already changed it from this purple to a prussian blue that I'm happier with.
Sure, it could have been quicker without the artwork, but my art space is happier... and so am I.
